Avid VENUE | Snake Card


Accommodate larger productions and ensembles by doubling your Profile or D-Show System's stage input and output capacity. With the Snake Card, an option for the FOH Rack, you can connect a second Stage Rack to expand your remote I/O capacity to a maximum 96 inputs and outputs. Each Snake Card transmits up to 48 inputs and outputs between your Avid VENUE system’s remote Stage Rack and console.
